Cancer is a heartbreaking disease. It still has no acute cure and the patients who get cancer battle with it for a long time with a ‘hope’ of coming through healthy. The process of treatment takes a lot of physical and psychological elements from the patient and that causes pain and sorrow in the hearts of a lot of people.
But with Joseph Barnes, it is a different case. Meet this man who got diagnosed with cancer when he went to get his back pain checked. The doctor explained that cancer has already spread to his lungs and also his spine. With Testicular cancer, he started his treatments. Unlike other patients who shave their heads or wait until their hair falls off. He thought of doing something fun with it. Scroll down to check out what Barnes did to bid his hair adieu.
He had this idea of styling his hair in fashionable ways before losing it. He got Sven de Almeida to capture some portraits of him in different sorts of hairstyles done by one of his friends who had the skill in hairstyling.
This shows the extremely positive attitude Barnes has towards battling against cancer. He is currently getting treatments for his cancer and he has started his own podcast to let his family, friends, and people know that he is doing okay and he is taking the treatments in a very positive manner. This is a very good approach since a lot of patients’ mentality degrade severely.
